Jewel To Play June Carter Cash In Lifetime Movie
Jewel is to play June Carter Cash in a lifetime movie. Two things are for sure. Number one June Carter Cash will always be one of the most respected women in Country Music, and rightfully so. Number two, Hollywood seems to not know what in the world June looks like! Reese Witherspoon and now Jewel? June was never as glamorous as these two. She was very much Grandmotherly and ruggedly chic even in youth. As good as Walk The Line was, June never looked or sounded like June. I actually think Reese was prettier and even sang better. Nothing against June, who I loved. But the casting is just odd. These choices aren't the only odd casting in country music feature films. THE ROCK will be starring as country legend Charley Pride in a future feature. I didn't even know THE ROCK was black!! Seems people are having fun casting people. Lets hope they don't cast Mary J. Blige as Dolly Parton.
